Financial Contributions

We try to find a balance between the sustainability of the program, our livelihoods as trainers, and our desire for the program to be accessible to people regardless of their access to financial resources.  In other words, we try to hold many needs with full care, and we want to provide a process of choice for potential participants to do the same.
The charts below summarize your options for payment, and their implications.
